Who is Anger Management counselling for?
Anger management counselling can be beneficial for individuals who feel like they have little control over their temper, and that their anger is negatively affecting their quality of life.

Unresolved, they can result in negative coping strategies such as alcohol or drug dependencies. Working with a counsellor to manage anger can greatly improve a person’s mental health and bring a sense of calm into a person’s life.
